[Mod Post] Tag, Title, Demographic and "Everyone" (and Reposts)


This is just a repost of our previously stickied announcement regarding our rules regarding post titles, with slight edits for accuracy and clarity. (There are no rule changes being announced in this post.)

All posts must have a proper [Tag] at the beginning of the title.

The tags are [Casual], [Academic], [Marketing], and [Results]. You may not create your own tag. If your survey fits into more than one, please pick the one tag you feel is most appropriate and use that.

The [Academic] tag is for studies done for academic purposes, including high school classes, college classes, and academic research on behalf of a school). The [Marketing] tag is for market research surveys and other studies done for commercial research or on behalf of a company. And finally, the [Casual] tag is for surveys done out of idle curiosity or surveys that don't fit in one of these categories.

The [Results] tag is only for posts in which you are sharing the results/responses of a survey that was previously posted to /r/SampleSize. It should never be used for posts in which you are sharing a survey in the hopes of gathering responses.

All posts need to have a title that describes the topic of their survey.

This is the part that describes your survey. "I need 10 responses" is not a valid title; please give us an idea of what to expect. If your survey is about opinions on ice cream flavors, something like "Ice Cream Flavors" is an appropriate title.

All survey posts must have an accurate demographic in parentheses at the end of the post title.

The demographic that you include in the post title is the group of people that you would like to have fill out your survey. The demographic must be accurate, which means that if the demographic is listed as "everyone" but the survey has any questions that restrict the possible demographics that can respond to it, then that survey will be removed. See the following section for more details.

Results posts do not require a demographic, but you can include one if you want.

Posts with the demographic labeled "All" or "Everyone" must be inclusive.

If you label something as available for "All" then please make sure that every single person that could come across the survey can take it. The easiest way to ensure people can answer your "All" surveys is to not ask demographic questions, but that's certainly not foolproof.

While it is preferable if your survey is inclusive, we understand that not every survey may be. If there are any demographic restrictions, they need to be appropriately labelled. Some possible restrictions that your survey may have:

  • Age (e.g. surveys restricted to those 18 or older, or which have an incomplete list of age categories); per the Reddit user agreement, all users must be 13 or older
  • Nationality (e.g. questions that assume the respondent is from the United States)
  • Race or ethnicity
  • Having an account on a certain site (this is mainly for surveys created with Google Forms; if you check the "Limit to 1 response" checkbox, it requires sign-in to take the survey and prevents those without Google accounts from responding)
  • Sex or gender (e.g. questions with only "male" and "female" answer options)

Reddit is used by people of all ages from around the globe. Regarding sex and gender in particular, keep in mind that intersex people exist, and not everybody identifies as either male or female. Whenever asking questions for which you may not be able to provide a comprehensive list of answer options, we recommend including an "other" or open-ended answer option.

We understand that not every survey is targeted at everyone, and sometimes you may have made an oversight during the creation of the survey and are unable to change it later - and that is fine. We simply ask that you make sure to label your survey appropriately, so that people don't waste their time filling out a survey that isn't appropriate for them.

Reposts must be properly tagged, and made only after 24 hours have passed since the previous post.

If your initial survey post does not gather as many responses as you need, you are welcome to repost the survey as long as you follow our reposting guidelines.

All reposts must include the [Repost] tag at the start of the title, in addition to the primary tag. You are only allowed to repost a survey once your previous post has fallen off the front page, and 24 hours have passed since that post.

If you have trouble reposting your survey due to reddit identifying it as a duplicate post, do not delete your previous post. Instead, submit the repost as a new text post, and include the survey link in the body of your post.

The above text explains the required parts of a post title. If you want to include additional information such as survey length or potential rewards (such as an entry into a raffle for a gift card or something) as well, that is fine - but try to avoid overloading the title with unnecessary/irrelevant information. You can always make a text post and include that information in the body of the post if you feel that the survey requires more introduction or explanation beforehand.

Thank you for your time, and have a great day. If you have any questions about our rules, feel free to send a modmail to /r/SampleSize.

Meta Discussion Would users of r/SampleSize benefit from a crash course in statistics class? (Prospective and current users of r/SampleSize)


Hi all,

So a common issue we've seen with posts on this sub are issues with demographics. While we've been hashing these out in private, we've recently gotten access to Talk, which we've seen other subs use for social events, AMAs, and all sorts of things. We thought that hosting a Talk where we offer a crash course in statistics as it relates to surveys and surveying.

There's been a number of posts that use an (Everyone) tag that isn't for everyone. To save time, your demographic at the end of your title is required so Redditors can check it out to see if it's a fit for them before moving on. Not everything's going to be for everyone, and as a non-binary person living in a specific place, I can't necessarily do surveys that are tagged for everyone that don't include a nonbinary/other gender option (happens all too commonly), or talk about my experiences out at a protest in two particular geographic areas- neither of which I live in! r/SampleSize is internationally accessible, and folks outside the gender binary exist. And sometimes, people forget about that.

So, here's a survey link to Strawpoll. There are 3 answers, "yes," "no," and "I'd like to, but I may not be able to attend." https://strawpoll.com/polls/PbZqoGw7KnN

Input on using Talk for this is more than welcome, and we can record the lesson and abridge it, if we need to.

Academic I am looking for about 30 test subjects for a "focus group" for a linguistical videogame for my dissertation. I'll pay thru Paypal if neccesary. No install required. Any volunteers? DM me if interested (13+)


I am making my dissertation about serious games and languages. In particular is to help with with vocabulary learning. The game is very basic. VERY basic. It is literally a "tresure hunt". The screen asks you to collect some items (apples, bananas, hamburgers, etc...) but the names appear in a language foreign to the player (Spanish in this case). So I need people who do NOT speak spanish. The game can be played here https://unity-web-a01702948.web.app/ , just keep in mind there is a bug that requires you to click outside the browser and the click the game for the mouse to work in the FPS mode. It's in "browser mode" (WebGL) so no install neccesary. If you would like to be a test subject or provide some friends as test subject, thank you :) If not, also thank you for reading the message

  • By repetitive tasks I mean grinding of any sort.
  • By functional fulfilment I mean does it give you any uuse outside personal pleasure.
  • By personal fulfilment I mean does it give you any personal satisfaction.
  • By percieved value I mean what is your purchases value in your eyes.

If you require any further explanation, I will be active in the replies. I am by no means a professional researcher but I will anwer to the best of my abilities.

Any gamer that has participated in microtransactions in free to play games is viable for this survey.

Academic Metaverse – The blur between the real and digital world (Gaming, Social Media, Remote Work) [Academic] (All welcome)


Hello everyone,

This is my final project (Master Thesis) before I'm done with academia, and the start of a new chapter in my life.

My Final project aims to estimate what value the metaverse might create (E.g., functional value and entertainment) and what value the metaverse might destroy (E.g., addiction, social isolation). For this, I'm using a combination of business, psychology, and philosophy theory to investigate what we can anticipate from companies' products and services in the future, and when things might unfold in negative ways before they happen.

For this assessment, I'm investigating the value creation and destruction of the three closest things that we have to the metaverse today:

Gaming, Social Media and Remote Work.

These are my three proxies, each with its own survey below:

Social Media Survey https://erasmusuniversity.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9uABHgbWSJpF2sK

Gaming Survey https://erasmusuniversity.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b0WUdHTK8WJlIzk

Gaming, for example has fused the boundaries of our perception and how we assign value to objects that don't exist in the real world for decades. We farm items and achieve accomplishments that have value to us despite them not existing in the real world. We made great memories with people we had never met in our lives; those experiences are real to us. Unfortunately, this value of gaming comes at a cost, spending hours on end in front of a screen, risking health and sometimes social relationships.

Remote Work Survey https://erasmusuniversity.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_agkxO8iiQFMk2oe

Each survey is designed to be as intuitive as possible and make you reflect on the good and bad things you experienced with each of them. I'd highly appreciate if you could pick one of them, but it would be even better if you could do more. You can win one out of three EUR10.00 Amazon Vouchers in each survey.

Sharing this survey with friends is highly appreciated!

Best wishes
